    This treatment is used to control the acidity, alkalinity, or other water qualities which affect pipes and equipment used to transport water. By controlling these factors, the public water system can reduce the leaching of metals such as copper, iron, and zinc from pipes or fixtures, as well as the color and taste associated with these contaminants. Also, odor-causing compounds may hydrolyze, photolyze, or biodegrade during a taste and odor episode or during the sampling and analysis steps (Khiari et al., a).
